Everyone of us has gone through or is currently going through a rough patch in life. I tend to relieve those and easily fall into the "victim" role of "Why is this happening to me?" "Why is everyone always picking on me when I haven't done anything." I feel as if I need to get to the root of the problem in order to fully move forward. In reality, though, that is a luxury I cannot afford. I am TRYING to come to terms with a lot of things that have happened in my life. Unfortunately, sometimes I get depressed thinking of how people have done me wrong. I am trying to overcome this. Right now, as I type this journal entry, I am fighting this. This depressive episode will not defeat me. I will take deep breaths and remember that I already have the victory. It does not matter what happened in the past. Isaiah 54:17 reminds me that no weapon formed against me will be able to prosper. Romans 8:28 states "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose". Thank you, God, for giving me a strong healthy mind and a strong healthy body. Though I am being persecuted at work YOU, Lord, will use that for good. You will be glorified; you will be magnified. God will make a way. Praise God!
